Panti Forest Reserve

Situated in the southern part of Peninsular Malaysia, this reserve holds a slightly different set of species due to its peat swamp forest. Species such as Grey-breasted Babbler, Red-crowned Barbet, Rufous-tailed Shama and Grey-chested Jungle-Flycatcher are more regularly seen here than in other parts of the country. However, Panti is best known for being THE place in the world to see Rail Babbler. The high density of this enigmatic species here coupled with the sparse undergrowth provide birders with good chances of seeing it.
